Waiting on the 11th for the opening day in Alabama. I've seen quite a few in my bit of woods, if they don't evaporate suddenly.

One squirrel at a time...


Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.

Yep, one at a time...... But I guess at 70, that's better than not being able to hunt at all! grin

Absolutely, I hope to still be going at it at that age and beyond. A bad day in the woods beats most days anywhere else.

Finally got out a couple times last week. First day out was a "lets see if this works" kind of day. I took my pudelpointer with me. He loves to chase and look for squirrels in the yard, so I figured I take him with me. While he didn't tree any squirrels, he did well listening and retrieved the two I shot. He was a bit hesitant at first, but found and brought both of them to me.

Saturday morning I headed to an area with quite a few mature hickory trees. Saw and shot one on the way in and then ended up getting 4 more out of one hickory tree.

I decided to wait until it cools off this year to start hunting them- too many ticks in my area to risk it (for me). I’m looking forward to some crisp mornings in the squirrel woods, though!


Heal quickly and don't scar.

Our season in Ark runs from May till the end of Feb. It’s been too hot for me so far, temps are supposed to be in the 70s/40s this week. I had back surgery today so I’ll miss that window. I’m to the point I’d rather run a small trap line and squirrel hunt as much as anything.

Glad you and your Son are hunting together👍👍

It's because he did his sharpshooting with a M39! Squirrels get light headed and fall out of the tree when they see a M39. smile

I feel sorry for you guys that have to wait til fall to kill squirrels.

Kill them young ones in the spring like we can and you won't have finer eating.
